Title:
Death at Tea
Date:
1943 November
Description:

They probably took a direct hit from a mortar bomb, or perhaps an anti-personnel mine. There were about a dozen of them, British soldiers familiarly called “Tommies”, sitting in a circle drinking tea and reading mail from home. They were hard to count; body parts were scattered all around. I was so upset by this scene that I forgot to focus my camera and had trouble holding it steady.

Location: Near Mozza Grogna, North of the Sangro R. [River].
